Blue Eyes Portrait



I like to do portraits that fill the canvas with the person’s face.  I want the viewer to feel the personality of the subject.

Notice the eyes  –  the pupil has a highlight and the bottom of the iris does, too.  That makes the person look alive.  The bottom lip always has a highlight, too, because it is smooth and shiny.  There are highlights in the hair.  You can see spots of blue, brown and light green.  The gold necklace has highlights to give it a sparkle.

Don’t you think she’s interested in you?

The eyes in this painting definitely draw your attention. It reminds me of the saying, “The eyes are the window to the soul.”

It has often been said, “The eyes are the windows to a person’s soul.” This painting demonstrates a person with a loving soul.
